in israel and the first thawing the often frosty relationship with benjamin netanyahu. is it a turning point in the region? let's ask dan henninger and global view columnist bret stevens. so, bret, the big news out of this, or at least at the surface, that a new good feeling between prime minister y netanyahu and president obama. real or does it makes a difference? >> real, and it's definitely good in terms of the optics, president obama spent the first four years trying to put as much distance between him avenue sn the israelis as he could. it didn't serve american interests or anyone's interest. now he's there and talking about my friend bb. maybe it's not sincere, but it's creating a perception of greater closeness. that's a good thing. israelis respond better when they're being held than when they're being scolded. no question, the speech went over well. the real question is whether the president has a realistic vision for-- >> well, he raised the prospects of this peace agreement with the palestinians. he's clearly, john kerry, the secretaries of state made this a priority or wanted to.
think he is right about this. it is also true that benjamin netanyahu is facing a different situation at home. he does not have the same kind of majority, came closer to losing than people thought he would. obama was reelected despite his attempts to prevent that. so, they both have an interest in getting something done. i think it is highly remote that anything will get done. the neighborhood has only gotten more dangerous. >> colby king? >> i thought it was important that he made the trip. ultimately, if there is going to be peace in the area it will have to come from those on the ground. the united states can not do it from the outside. george bush tried unsuccessfully. every president has tried and all failed because of the participants. >> what has changed? the settlements continue, but it is no longer number one on president obama's agenda. >> the president has acknowledged the mistake early on, but let's be frank, the relationship has changed. netanyahu embraced, endorsed and basically campaigned for mitt romney, who did not carry florida, which was supposed to be the cornersto

benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem on wednesday. the president has often been criticized for his distance relationship with the israeli leader but many see this visit as a chance to make things better. much is at stake as israel grapples with a nuclear iran and a lagging peace process. joining me, aaron david miller, vice president of woodrow wilson international center for scholars and a former middle east advisor to democratic and republican secretaries state. here in new york, steven cook of the council on foreign relations. i'm pleased to have both of them back on this program. let me begin with you steven what's the hope of this trip? >> well, the hope is at least officially for the president to reset his relationship with the israeli leader and the israeli people. as you pointed out. there's been some difficulty in the relationship between the leaders. there's been rhetoric the way in which the president has approached the u.s. relationship with israel. of course beyond this rhetoric israeli leaders from the israeli ambassador to the united states to the now former minister of the d
, the fact is that benjamin netanyahu next year will be the longest surviving israeli prime minister ever. he's the only prime minister that has won back-to-back elections sequentially and the fact is he's challenged now by two upstarts. lapid and bennett, both of whom are not focused in the main on foreign policy and security issues but on social and economic ones so it's a paradox, in order to maintain his relevance as a foreign policy national security guy-- which is his strong suit-- the fact is he does need a better relationship with obama because obama holds the key on that front, certainly on iran. >> reporter: speaking of iran-- and i'll come back to that relationship-- is what the president saided in an interview with israeli television, will that comfort israelis? >> it certainly should comfort israelis. after all, the record suggests that the administration has worked very, very hard on the iranian challenge and the president has said that take my word, we're not interested in containing iran, we're interested in preventing iran from developing nuclear technology. i think it should

washington nationals could come to -- bet -- prime minister benjamin netanyahu said president barack obama is taking the lead on how u.s. will respond to iran's threats and that's because the u.s. is israel's strongest ally and iran could have a nuclear weapon to use in the next few months and they believe it could not happen for another year which could form more peace talks. he wants to talk about peace. >> to speak directly to the people of israel and to neighbors... >> reporter: the president is meeting with israel and the two will hold a news conference. live in washington kyla campbell ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> the 15-year-old girl from pakistan who was shot in the head by the taliban because she fought for the rights of women now has a new school to go to. she is attending school in birmingham england. last october she was shot by a taliban who shot her in the head who claims she was promoting western thinking. she said she wants all girls to have the basic opportunities to go to school. >>> a group of nine-year-olds in berkeley has been talking to their friends via skype. hi

, the president's meeting with israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu focused on another threat to israel in the region. it runs nuclear ambitions. >> we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the region, a threat to the world, and potentially an threat to israel. all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> richard, help somebody out at home who is watching this. the president of the united states goes into hamas and allies decide to fire missiles into israel which they do all the time. can you explain why they would act and continue to act in a way that is against their best interests? >> for groups like hamas, you know, their title represents what they are. they are the islamic resistant movement. this for he them is station identification. this is the way that they essentially say we have a better path for dealing with the israelis. >> no peace? no peace? >> well, peace -- not a negotiated peace. certainly not a peace on the terms of being discussed by israel or the united states. >> not a peace tha

. and the relationship with prime minister benjamin netanyahu has been frayed a little bit. so it's an important reinforcement, symbolic visit. but i think the president's also going to talk about a middle east peace package. about laying the groundwork for that. he's going to meet with the palestinians. he's going to meet with the king of jordan. push, i think, the israeli people in that direction. so it's more than symbolism. it's reinforcing a very strong relationship. we have to talk to israel about what's happening in syria, the iran situation. so on many fronts it's a useful, positive trip but no big break. >> especially when it comes to geopolitical relationships here's what president obama had to say last week on his radio tv with his relationship with bebe netanyahu. >> we've got a terrific relationship. he's very blunt with me on issues, and i'm very blunt with him about issues and we get stuff done. >> blunt? the trip is going to highlight talks with netanyahu. but the speech in jerusalem, more to be done with visiting with mahmoud abbas as well. could this be obama helping to set up
in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netanyahu bears an enormous amount of the responsibility for that. if this president doesn't want to be the president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and the two-state solution expires, he's simply going to have to figure out a way to work with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us su

but it is with the people on the ground there. with benjamin netanyahu and the people of the palestinians. and they've not known in their reactions with each other any ability to proceed. the president didn't go there with a new plan. all he is saying is get back to the table. it is not a very strong message. a realistic message given the situation. >> as we reported off the top, the reaction to president obama's visit has been a mostly positive one there. this is what the "jerusalem post" had to say this morning. living in a neighborhood, and even in a world in which there are those who have not exactly accepted our right to legitimacy to be here, having the most powerful man in the world come and give us a public bear hug is very important. one cannot help but ask, how much frustration, aggravation and anger. what had been prevented in both israel and the united states had obama made this trip and adopted this approach at the beginning of his presidency. why could you think do have we think he did not reach out this way sooner? >> he is there. he did go there. he went before he was president. thi
and benjamin bb netanyahu and took questions from his friends in the lame stream media and did not have an explanation why he's done nothing to promote peace in the middle east. >> meeting none of these challenges will be easy, ultimately it's a hard problem. it is a hard to work through all of these issues, 'cause it's hard. precisely because it's hard. >> sean: there you have it. your nobel peace prize winner in action. wow, what amazing stuff. also tonight, stunning images of civil unrest in the west bank are making the rounds. these protests were staged in anticipation of the anointed one's arrival, the burning of american flags and burning of images of obama himself. more evidence that the anointed one has failed to make good on his promise that he would restore america's standing in the world. joining me tonight with analysis, former florida congressman colonel allen west along with radio talk show host and be fox news contributor, leslie marshall welcome back to the program. and leslie, suck up america's arrogant apology tour, it blows up in his face. things have gotten dramatica
as president and sits down with benjamin netanyahu. from the beginning the united states has had extremely good cooperation on the intelligence front from the israeli government. obviously, they are in the neighborhood, syria's neighbor to the south. they have a much better picture here, not only of the state of play with the assad regime and its stability. the sources say a few more months at best for assad, but also the movement of chemical weapons. that exchange of information is critical from the united states' standpoint. while israel was out ahead of the obama administration in saying assad must go, you have to understand it's a little jittery in israel at this moment because they look to the south and what happened in egypt, the rise of the muslim brotherhood, given all the uncertainty of who and what would succeed assad if he were to fall, wolf. important the president and prime minister stay on the same page on this one. >> what do they expect to emerge from president obama's visit to israel this week? >> it's interesting. if you talk to key officials here in israel, talk to members of
minister, benjamin netanyahu, a conservative, somebody unwilling to say stop settlement building. rise up to your government and said, we want a new israel, different israel. don, we could talk an hour about the obstacles of peace, but nudge your side to move forward, hopefully young palestinians will nudge their side. might say the president trying a new grassroots approach here in israel. >> i want you to listen to this, john, again. he spoke of a meeting he had with palestinian youth. >> talking to them, they weren't that different from my daughters. they weren't that different from your daughters. or sons. i honestly believe that if any israeli parent sat down with those kids, they'd say, i want these kids to succeed. i want them to prosper. i want them to have opportunities. >> john king, that's all well and good, lovely words, but let's talk about actions, specifically this. iraq has fired at israel today during the president's visit. fired, in fact, from gaza, whose palestinian leaders refuse to accept israel's right to exist. despite the applause the president got, his new offensi
